FEW: Financially Empowered Women
This book is a collection of success stories of select ASKI Global students who have participated in the Citi-ASKI Overseas Workers Financial Stability Program. These are the women who have gone from having little or no awareness of financial management to eventually being able to take ownership of their finances and make informed decisions on financial issues after attending the financial literacy course.
Now, they are on the road towards financial freedom.
They are the FEW: Financially Empowered Women.
"FEW is a story of 10 women and 5 families. These women are those who have taken Financial Education course with support from Citi Foundation. A small number out of the 2,500 trained, but their stories show how their mind set and financial behaviour have changed after the training. FEW also features how the overseas workers have influenced the way their family members think and behave about the money being sent to them. FEW stories of women is a first step towards achieving financial freedom. FEW stories of families is the first to the last mile of achieving real social impacts towards sustainable growth."
